Animals and Their Food Choices

When we want something to eat, our available choices are many. We can pick one of a long list of restaurants and other prepared-food places, or we can go to the grocery store and choose from an unimaginable assortment of things to eat. Furthermore, most of these choices are available to us 365 days a year. And most of us have lived with these conditions for so long that we don't even think about how truly incredible that is.

Our ancestors, and the Native Americans before them, certainly didn't have it this easy. And neither do all of the native animals that live around us today.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

I find myself wishing for a hurricane style rain without the wind gusts. I know we were richly blessed a short time ago, but my tank is still pitifully low. The cows have a decent amount of green grass and I hope it will last at least a month or so before it’s time to start feeding. I am praying for all those folks along the coast who are getting ready to be drenched. We humans are just too needy.

The quilting ladies went to the City Sewing Center for some sale material. They have some really cute fabric at excellent prices. When you turn 17 women loose in a fabric store, dangerous things happen. I believe we worked that poor woman’s fingers to the bone.

And the rains came!

San Saba and much of Texas have been recently blessed with several days of rainfall. Pictured is the San Saba River at Old Pecan Grove Road bridge filling its banks, and then some. This flow mostly originated from rainfall in the Menard area. San Saba residents are looking forward to cooler temperatures and possibly more rain in the coming days.
